“You can’t hear the vocals? … what the f show do you think this is?” yelled Lou Barlow at some clueless complainers. The full throttle sonic guitar onslaught that is a live Dinosaur Jr. show was on display on Saturday at Bowery Ballroom, and those few fans seeking vocals were bound to be disappointed. The vast majority of the crowd was treated to a ninety-minute run through the Dinosaur Jr. catalog that was perhaps a bit too heavy on material from 2009’s Farm, but never let up on the intensity. Any disappointed old school fans were more than satisfied at the two encore selections — first album songs “Repulsion” and the ultra-rare “Mountain Man”.

I recorded this set from the standard balcony rail location, the vantage point pictured above. The sound quality is quite excellent. Enjoy!

The Sunday night show at Music Hall was also recorded for nyctaper and will be posted soon.

    Awesome show! I only wished they played Fury Little Things and some more material from Beyond. Still, an amazing show.

    Awesome. Thanks so much for this. I saw them play last night (my ears are still ringing). They played Just Like Heaven in the encore which slayed.

    Thanks again for this! I can’t wait to listen to this show again. For the fans, I have uploaded some videos of the show here: http://vimeo.com/user2665045/videos. They are all shot in full 1080p. I added three videos and hope to add more within the coming weeks. I hope you’ll all check them out and support Dino by buying their latest album, which is damn good!
